A wedding in the sun - wish I was there....

This card is on its way to warmer climes - my cousin in Australia is getting married on Saturday, let's hope it gets there in time! If only I was able to take it in person and get away from this blooming cold weather.....

I used the Bev's sketch from the challenge at Lili of the Valley this week, papers from a wedding DCWV stack, and a Martha Stewart punch. I didn't add too many layers or embellies to keep the postage down and in the hope that it would get there quicker - you know me, last minute dot com :)

Hope you are all keeping warm and managing to fit in lots of crafting.

Even longer time - no see....

My posts on here are very few and far between these days.... I haven't stopped making cards, I don't make as many as I used to and when I do manage to make them I either give them away before photographing them or miss the challenge the card was made for!!

On to a card for which the challenge is still open....

This uses the sketch at Sketch & Stamp which runs until this Sunday. I adore this cute LOTV stamp, just itching to get some more, wondering what the new releases are like, only have to wait till midnight! Still trying to use up some of my stash, the papers are from a HOTP pad I've had for ages but just love the bright colours, the image was coloured with copics, so relaxing colouring with these.

And here's another reason why I'm not making so many cards - another hobby to keep me occupied!

This is quilt the same size as the top of a double bed, so I hope the people I've made it for have got a double and not king size.... It was made with fabric from a jelly roll.

and this is what I made with the bits that were left.

I've got several more of these to make up, just don't know what design to make, got a stack of books to browse through and will probably do that this weekend as it looks like the weather is going to be rubbish.
